Capita, the last mural by street artist Blu in Rome
Italian street artist Blu strikes again with his last mural in the neighborhood of Rebibbia, in Rome.
The famous Italian street artist Blu, as well as one of the most interesting personalities within the local panorama, has created during the period of the festivities a new mural entitled “Capita”. The work is located in Rome, in the district of Rebibbia, and portrays an imaginary attraction composed of colorful water slides that lead into two distinct tanks: in one the water is putrid and collects the mass, made of humble and weak people; in the second tank, that represents the strong powers, we find a select few, floating in the crystalline water.
References are quite clear, the mural is a critique and a stance towards a society driven by the most exasperated capitalism, by a corrupt and march political class. The idea of organicity is given by the construction of the design, conceived as a large sick intestine.
The triumph capitalist system, which increases social inequalities and injustices, leads to a point of no return where the identity of individuals and of the country is attributed to behavioral codes that seem irreversible.
